Rahul Dev Burman's last puja album in Bangla for HMV was Ga
Pa Ga Re Sa in 1990, which sadly didn't do well enough, even though the
songs in that album were magnificent. After a three year gap, Biswanath
Chatterjee of Concord Records contacted RD for a puja album with Usha
Uthup (Preme Pore Jai).
Indrani had already been remaking RD's songs in Bangla for her puja
albums. Her Puja album of 1991 released by Concord Records had remakes of
some RD numbers. Probably her 1993 puja album was planned along the same
With RD joining the concord team for Usha's album (which had all
previously unreleased tunes), it was suggested that he add a few
original numbers to the Indrani album as well, so that this album gets
released as an original puja album rather than a remake album.
So, while some songs are absolute remakes of old Pancham hits (like
Beeti Na Beetai Raina (Parichay), Humen Tumse Pyar Kitna (Kudrat), a few
songs are absolutely new.
Following RD's death in January 1994, this album was re-released -
incorporating clips of RD singing some songs in his own way.
Indrani Sen, in her other releases, recorded many RD tunes with the same
arranger, Amit Banerjee. The ones I have come across are listed on her
page in the 'Remakes' section of this site.
